WELCOME TO ALPHAVILLE, where the she-wolves and alpha-males play. . .for keeps, in a brand-new paranormal romance series from New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren.
Dr. Annie Cryer has been called many things: Genius. Child prodigy. Scientific wonder.
Banished from her pack years ago, Annie’s lone wolf wandering has brought her to Alpha, Washington, home to all shifters who don’t quite fit in in the “normal” shifter word. Now Annie has the chance to go back home…if only she can make good on a favor her alpha owes the mayor of “Alphaville.” But it’s not much of a favor when you’re helping the hottest shifter in town…
Grizzly shifter Jonas Browning has a clan in trouble. They haven’t had a child born in over a hundred years…and their clan faces going completely extinct. Genetic scientist Anne Cryer has been sent to help save them. But what Jonas doesn’t count on is being irresistibly drawn to the small wolf shifter, and his bear isn’t about to let her go…
I requested and was approved for the first book in this new series by Ms. Warren, Baby, I’m Howling For You. A week or so later I was offered a copy of the prequel novella along with an invitation to join the blog tour. Unfortunately, health issues prevented me from being able to join in the fun… I’m still battling the flu. Anyway, I finally found a moment and motivation in wanting to finish just one more book before 2017 ends and decided to spend the afternoon reading this title.
I’m so glad I did because I now plan to spend the first day of 2018 devouring the next book! This was such fun read that had me laughing at so many moments. It was simply perfect! There was humor, science (y) plot, relationship drama, and a really good steamy scene. We have a smart sassy strong female lead and a horny yet bumbling commitaphobe mate that really puts his foot in his mouth. My only complaint is that it was simply too short! The dialog was great and setting up of this new society was just right no info dump here but I didn’t feel lost either. I do understand that this is to be a spin-off from her Others series but you do not have to have read that one to dive into this world.
I’ve not read a shifter series for a while and it looks like Alphaville is going to be a fun new playground for me to spend my reading time in. This book while short had plenty to offer and I hope you go grab a copy for yourself after all the price is quite the deal. Perfect to get you hooked. This was a great title to end my reading year on!
